DPA CORE 4060 Omni Miniature Microphone, MicroDot, Normal SPL


The DPA CORE 4060 microphone is small in size (5mm), but mighty in flexibility. Due to its miniature size, it exhibits an exceptionally accurate omnidirectional pattern and therefore does not need to be aimed directly at the sound source to achieve quality pickup.

✔️ Extremely rugged and reliable
✔️ Diminutive size made for flexible and easy concealment
✔️ Modular adapter system fits most professional wireless systems


4060 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphone, Normal SPL

The DPA CORE 4060 Omni microphone is small in size, but mighty in flexibility. The 4060’s miniature size enables an exceptionally accurate omnidirectional pattern. You therefore, do not need to aim it directly at the sound source to achieve quality pickup. The omnidirectional pattern also makes it less sensitive to handling noise, as well as pop and wind noise. This microphone handles sound pressure levels of up to 134dB before clipping occurs.

Diversity in Applications

The DPA 4060 Miniature allows for a diverse range of applications. Originally designed for use with wireless systems in theatres, it is also now one of the most loved microphones for film and television applications. Ideal for capturing speech in all of its nuances, it is also suitable for close-miking a wide range of instruments. For applications where the sound source is more remote or dampened and you need to have a good balance of signal to noise ratio, the 4060 is the perfect solution.

Interchangeable Grids

By selecting the correct grid for your application, it is possible to modify the acoustic response of the 4060 Series.

Included with each microphone are two grids. The pre-fitted Soft Boost Grid gives a 3dB soft boost at 8-20kHz. It is recommended to be used when the microphone is mounted on the performer’s head, and in most other applications where you need a natural-sounding microphone. When fitted, the High Boost Grid introduces a 10dB soft boost at around 12kHz for applications where chest-placement is preferred, and including under-clothing applications. Both of these grids are made of anodised stainless steel, giving a tough and scratch resistant surface. You can detach the grids from the microphone and clean them of sweat, makeup, etc.

The DPA CORE 4060 Omni Miniature Microphone, Normal SPL is available in four colours: black, brown, beige and white. An even more robust, heavy-duty version is also available.
